A six-issue 1990 comic book series. The comics follow the Men In Black, a secret organization that polices supernatural and extraterrestrial beings on Earth. The story centers on Agent Ecks, who goes rogue when [[spoiler:he realizes that the Men In Black wish to TakeOverTheWorld by concealing the existence of the supernatural]]. Other characters include Agents Zed, Jay, and Kay.

This comic book was eventually adapted into the ''Film/MenInBlack'' film series and [[WesternAnimation/MenInBlack cartoon]].

!! Tropes included:
* AdaptationalHeroism: Unbeknownst to most fans of the films, the MIB in the comics are more ruthless and sinister than their film and cartoon counterparts, so much so that we later learn that they only deal with all this paranormal stuff as a plot to [[spoiler: TakeOverTheWorld]]. A big theme in the story is that what the MIB are doing (torturing and killing innocent beings, brainwashing people) is wrong.
** Most notably J and K. Especially K, who is way more nasty than he is in the movies and cartoon. This leads to:
* AdaptationalVillainy: The aliens, demons and other paranormal creatures were a lot more sympathetic in the comics. In this comic, HumansAreTheRealMonsters.
* FantasyKitchenSink: Unlike its film and animated adaptations, the Men in Black also monitors {{mutants}}, [[OurDemonsAreDifferent demons]], and other paranormal creatures.
* HeelFaceTurn: Agent X
* {{Jerkass}}: K, which might surprise people who are only familiar with the films.
* KnightTemplar
* ShortRunners: The original run was three issues. When TheMovie came out, three more MIB comics were made - one a straight retelling of the film, one taking place between movies 1 and 2, and only ''one'' a continuation of Lowell Cunningham's original miniseries.
* TheMenInBlack: Duh.
* VillainProtagonist: K all over. He neuralizes an entire street with abandon, leaves J to deal with a grieving mother and, in a later issue, [[spoiler:brainwashes a neuralized hick into climbing a clock tower with a rifle, then committing suicide, on his 16th birthday. Why? "For insurance."]] [[WellIntentionedExtremist All for the greater good, of course.]]
* WellIntentionedExtremist: K. He genuinely believes that keeping the paranormal secret is for the "greater good".
